Daily Afternoon Rain & Storms

Good chance for more rain Thursday

It'll still quite cooler than normal for mid-August, with highs touching 80 and light breezes stirring the air on a partly sunny day.

Overnight into Sunday morning, we'll likely see another flare-up of showers and storms.

We're sticking with the idea of a "don't cancel your plans" weekend forecast, but you may have to dodge a downpour or two here and there anyway.

Flash flooding is possible across most of the state.

By the end of the work week the ridge will slide off to the west moving closer to Acadiana helping to stabilize the atmosphere and suppress the rain chances.

Dory is a system used internally for Google employees to submit and vote on questions to be asked at town hall meetings. It signifies their belief that liberals stifle free speech by humiliating right-wing voices.

The heaviest of the rain looks to fall late Saturday afternoon and into Saturday evening across far southern Oklahoma.

A weak front drops south of the Valley on Sunday pushing most of the scattered storms southward into Central and South Alabama.

The week ahead will offer lower rain and storm chances just about every day, but the chance gets lower as the week goes along. The heat begins to build on Monday with isolated storms expected during the overnight hours Monday into Tuesday morning.

We start off with mostly cloudy skies across the Mid-South, with temps warming up to 84°; heat index: 87°.

The coverage of storms will increase again by Monday afternoon, and this looks to be the trend through most of the week.
